On August 4, 2018 our beloved Mother and Grandmother returned home to the loving arms of her Savior. Ruth Marie Shambow Allred was born Sept. 23, 1932 to Elva Marie Booth and Francis Levi Shambow in Tooele, Utah.
At age 16, she accepted the challenge to read the Book of Mormon and was baptized a member of the LDS church.
Ruth married Max G. Christiansen. They had 7 children: Cathy Lynn Allred; Keri Lee Christiansen; Rodney Max; Neils Peter "Pete"; Lizette Baker; John Philip; Charles Andrew "Andy".
Later she married her eternal companion, Owen A. Allred. They had 2 children: Mary Ruth Fountaine; Martha Beth Aagard.
Ruth was very proud of her posterity: 77 grandchildren; 133 great-grandchildren; and 6 great-great-grandchildren. She found delight in their many accomplishments and loved to display their pictures.
Ruth was a patriot of our country and the spirit of liberty burned in her heart. For 38 years, she dedicated her life to teaching history, math and language. She left her legacy with countless students.
